Christmas Project #2 - Check

I made this advent calendar for my sister.  While making it, I remembered why I love quilting so much :)  Creating and attaching the pockets was a little finicky, and I am learning more and more, that while I will do that kind of sewing, it isn't my favorite :)   With that said,  I was really happy with the little pockets when they were done and I think my niece will really enjoy it.


I decided to quilt it the same way I had quilted Christmas Project #1. I really like the way it makes the pictures pop :)  I went with a pretty small swirl and just love the way it turned out.


This picture is horrible as far as lighting but I think it makes it a little easier to see the quilting as it stands out a bit more :)


Pin It!
